Farmer's Oven-Baked Omelet

Recipe from: Southern Living
Servings: 10 to 12

12 large eggs
½ cup sour cream
2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
1 teaspoon salt
¾ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
¼ teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
6 small plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
8 ounces farmer cheese, shredded
½ cup chopped fresh basil
Garnish: fresh basil leaves

Beat first 6 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer 2 to 3 minutes or until well blended. Melt butter in a 12-inch ovenproof skillet; add egg mixture. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Remove from oven; sprinkle with tomatoes, cheese, and basil. Return to oven, and bake 15 to 20 more minutes or until set. Garnish, if desired; serve immediately.

Note:
Farmer cheese is a mild, part-skim, semisoft cheese available in 8 ounce rounds. Havarti or Monterey Jack cheese may be substituted.

Variation:
Spinach, Cheddar, and Bacon Omelet: Substitute 1 (10 ounce) package frozen, thawed, and well drained chopped spinach for thyme. Omit farmer cheese and fresh basil. Top with 8 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese and ½ cup cooked, crumbled bacon.
